Open Call: Ann Street Gallery Emerging Artist Fellowship

Safe Harbors of the Hudson’s Ann Street Gallery is pleased to announce our third annual Ann Street Gallery Emerging Artist Fellowship. The program provides a supportive platform for early-career or under-recognized artists in Newburgh and the Hudson Valley, with a focus on artists from historically marginalized communities. The fellowship provides three artists with opportunities for mentorship, networking, and professional development as well as a $2000 USD materials and supplies allowance, a cohort exhibition in the gallery during Newburgh Open Studios, and individual guidance toward identifying goals and further opportunities.

The deadline to submit an application is 11:59pm Monday, May 27, 2024.

The Ann Street Gallery Emerging Artist Fellowship aims to provide artists a supportive platform for experimental and substantive growth for a six month fellowship from June through November 2024. Located in the heart of Newburgh NY, Ann Street Gallery is situated at the nexus of community and the arts. Through the Fellowship, fellows have direct access to ASG’s and SHOH’s exhibitions and programming, explore the resources offered by Newburgh’s vibrant arts scene and cultural institutions, and the possibility to connect and engage with arts professionals and practitioners based in Newburgh and surrounding areas, and those participating in ASG and SHOH programming.

The Fellowship comprises both access to, and participation in, a supportive cohort led by the Gallery Director, and includes the mentorship of other local and regional artists and arts professionals.

The cohort will meet regularly at the Gallery for:

  • Sharing and discussing fellows’ work and fellowship project development
  • Professional practice workshops covering such topics as: artist statements and bios, budgets, CVs and resumes, research materials/methods, studio visit protocols, portfolios, project proposals, gallery talks, and building strategy and identity as professional artists
  • Guided exhibition planning, including promotional strategies, curatorial statement, layout, and installation
  • Arranged visits/tours of local and regional art institutions to broaden exposure to arts organizations and institutions in the Hudson Valley
  • Studio Visits to other practicing artists’ spaces, and to each others’ work spaces if desired
